Gate53 These are Pro Comp 32x11.50x15's and Yes they rub in a very tight turn with no lift. But I like them and they go where I point them. So far no damage and I do not treat them well.



As seen here lol

15x7 wheels will rub the control arms with 31x10.50s. 15x8 wheels will not, they clear but are close. But as already pointed out, its an easy fix with washers on the steering stops. It looks like they're welded on, but they're not. That weld holds a washer to the nut as a stop.

x2...1/2 spacers are a terrible idea. those type of spacers would require pressing out all the old lugs and pressing new, longer versions in. if you don't want to spend a few hours pressing out lug nuts, the best way get less backspacing is Spidertrax wheel spacers, or new wheels. Wheel spacers like Spidertrax are 1.25" thick, which is perfect for most TJ's.

Britanbradford Or if you don't want to risk using washers, you can buy 1/2 spacers. You'll only need two and they run about $50

s3nt3nc3d 31's sometimes rub and sometimes don't...but those that rub can be very quickly and easily fixed adding the washers as mentioned above. Extremely fast and simple fix. smin41, I'd recommend going with 31's.

Atthehop Washers are cheaper.

jeepjones Why don't you get some wheels with 3.75-4.00" backspacing.

distortedtj Usually takes two..depends on the thickness of the washer.
You will have one on both sides "knuckles"...do both.

And yes...that simple.
10-27-2010 11:14 PM
Red Wrangler so i just pull it off on both sides and throw a washer on there?
10-27-2010 11:11 PM
distortedtj They limit the radius of turning.

Here....

Red Wrangler i have absolutely no idea what the steering stop bolt is or where it is. ha
10-27-2010 11:00 PM
distortedtj Most likely rubbing on the lower control arms.

Easy fix. Place a washer or two behind the steering stop bolt ....fixed.

Tires Rub

so i just got some 31" BFGoodrich A/T not too long ago and i notice when i turn the wheel all the way to either side, they rub. i think theyre rubbing against the frame but im not completely sure. i havent rubbed them since i noticed that it does that. and i dont have a lift or anything. what can i do to stop the rubbing that isnt expensive? and i dont want to lift it quite yet. i just want that killer turn radius back. haha
